It’s official. Microsoft will be rolling out a system update starting April 6 that will bring USB flash support to Xbox 360. The drive will be able to store gamer profiles, saves, demos etc. Users will be able to use any flash or USB HDD having more than 1GB of space. However, as we already knew, Xbox 360 will use space only up to 16GB, which means it really doesn’t matter if you hook up a high capacious flash drive. The relief to this limitation is that Microsoft will allow users to attach two flash drives, basically giving a total space of 32GB.
Any flash or USB HDDs will work but Microsoft is also working with SanDisk to provide specially designed flash drives that will work out-of-the-box.
